This paper investigates thin layered structures as active systems and control strategies for their vibration suppressions and shape regulating. We focus on FEM modelled thin plates. Optimal voltages for shape control are obtained using genetic optimization. An optimal selection of actuators number and locations is considered. Data fusion for reduction of input data for simplifying the controlling process is studied. Numerical simulations are presented.
